Bay State Clergyman Performs Polygamous Marriage

Blogger Miss Kelly reports that a Massachusetts clergyman has already performed plural marriages in the Bay State. The reason for the disclosure is that one of the blissful fivesome is unhappy and is now seeking divorce.

Not to worry, though. In this case the clergyman and the polygamists are followers of Islam. So as our legislators showed us earlier this year, it is shortsighted for the Commonwealth to impose one value system on everybody, and these laws restricting legal marriage to a monogamous form need to become more inclusive. We don’t want to send anybody to jail over this, do we?

Miss Kelly’s original post is here.

Updates here and here.

It may be a while before you read about this in the Globe.
